So Monday I met with the medical advisor for a coalition of shelters/centers associated with sex trafficking. If everything goes according to plan, I may just get to set up the medical side and train all of them! How awesome is that! Well tomorrow I talk to the medical advisor again :)
But today she asked me to come to the opening of a women’s hospital. I had a feeling she wouldn’t have time to time to talk me, but I went anyways. And as I had suspected we didn’t talk but I met some cool people! There is a medical director of a hospital I have been wanting to meet but timings haven’t worked out and I met her today at the event and we’ll be having a meeting next week J I also met people from two different groups I have been wanting to connect with. God is awesome how He works!
See! Why do I worry! God has it all worked out! So as today I decided to take it easy and just relax and enjoy every moment and let God work it all out. He always does! So the list on my Iphone keeps growing as to what I need to do, but I can only do what I can do.
The last few days I have been thinking about English and how to teach it and in the last two days I have people who can help with it! Is God great or what! Hehe! All I have to do is think it and God does it!
So my English classes have been going great. There is a lot more too my student then I knew when I started. I thought she was a missionary who came to start a school but yesterday she told me her story and why. Yesterday was the peak of my fatigue. I had no energy or strength to counsel or baby anyone. So all I could do was encourage her to give it all to God and do the right thing. I felt all my words were falling on deaf ears, but ended the session with praying for her. Today in Khmer class she looked different and as soon as we started the English session she told me that since yesterday she has had a peace in her heart! YAY GOD! On my bicycle ride home yesterday I was telling God that I can’t do it, I can’t be there for her, I just don’t have the strength/energy to do it. I am barely getting by. But then that is why it was so clear today, that it’s not my ability, strength or anything, it is all God. I just need to turn to Him and turn people to Him and He’ll do it all :)
He’s taking care of me too. I really needed a break and even getting through the next day seemed so hard. So I was really happy that class was cut short ½ hour and when I got home imagine my joy when I go the text that our class tomorrow was cancelled! It was exactly what I needed. I don’t have to wake up early tomorrow. I scheduled my English class for 9. I can go clean and then have the lesson. Michael is back and I can get all my shopping done and move into the center! The team is arriving in a week and I should have all the kinks worked out by then! I love it!!
I tell you I feel like I new person today! I even cleaned all the bathrooms in the center. The fridge and all it’s icky gross disgusting fungus and junk is clean and smelling good! Hehe! Ok, I did try to take a nap and could barely get up to go to my 3:30, but as soon as I got out the door, the energy came.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me! :)
So tomorrows schedule is cleaning, English class, moving suitcases if I can, shopping for the center, bible study, Michael’s English class and then home and homework and studying (class is getting hard! and at the same time everything is making sense) J Of course every day is full of surprises. Today while I cleaning I got a call saying one of the girls had lost vision in one of her eyes and was in the hospital. So of course I left everything to go there. Praise God it was just a new onset migraine and she is fine. You just got to go with the flow and put your plans on the backburner. But I guess that goes along with my lesson – just trust God and relax. He is in control. Pray for the girls. J they have been getting injured and have been in and out of the hospital so much since I got here! Pray for me so that I relax and trust God in everything and of course get it all done and that God send people to help me. There is so much to do ;)
